Church Security and Safety Program
Career Diploma and Certification
Providing security services for places of worship, whether it be a large Christian church or a small town synagogue has drastically changed over the past twenty years even before the tragedy of 9-11.
As the security industry continues to evolve, the duties and responsibilities of church security teams have also grown and security officers, whether paid or volunteer must have the skills and training to address an assortment of crimes, confrontations, incidents and emergencies that they may face daily in the performance of their duties in the church.
Duties of both contract and proprietary security officers now includes protection of people, property and data, protection of staff, investigation of minor and serious offenses, responding to medical and other emergencies, confronting and apprehension of offenders as well as providing basic security functions such as access control and other physical security duties.
